Lexie's Little Lie
"...the story is full of heart and will resonate with Raina Telgemeier fans."--School Library Journal
New from the highly acclaimed author of Dream On, Amber and Dara Palmer's Major Drama--who knew one little lie could cause so much trouble?
Lexie and her cousin Eleni are super-crazy-mega-extra-seriously close. They're like twins who aren't actually twins, if that's possible. But when Lexie tells a terrible, jealous lie, her whole family is split apart.
It's up to Lexie to bring them all back together and fix her relationship with Eleni. After a few calamitous escapades, Lexie has discovered that there are all sorts of truths and all sorts of lies too...But can telling the truth be more hurtful than telling a lie?
